Our new homes are nearly ready –
and you can apply now!
The Charity is proud to announce that it is now ready to let 16 purpose-built flats at Mabel Luke Place, Mill Lane, Newbury
If you can show you have a connection to Newbury or Greenham Parish and meet our other criteria, you could soon be living in a new, one-bedroom or two-bedroom home in central Newbury.
These Almshouses are for the benefit of people with a connection to Newbury or Greenham Parish and who cannot afford to rent a suitable home in the private sector. Full eligibility criteria are set out in our Local Lettings Plan and Allocations Policy, which you can read here.
Weekly charges are set at affordable rent levels and are:
•£146.40 a week for a one-bedroom flat
•£164.80 a week for a two-bedroom flat
The charge must be paid by standing order, one month in advance.
You will also have to pay council tax (expected to be Band B, £1315.09 a year) and your own water, gas and electricity bills.
